Four More Boys Pulled From Flooded Thailand Cave

Thailand Cave Search

A Reuters witness saw three people being carried out of the Tham Luang cave on stretchers separately on Tuesday, the third day of the rescue operation.

Sunday's mission involved 13 foreign divers and five Thai navy SEALs. But then oxygen started running low in the cave, and officials also anxious the little piece of real estate the boys and their coach have could be lost.

Reuters reported that eight players have been rescued in risky attempts by a world-class global team of divers.

In this image made from video taken on July 8, 2018, an emergency team carries a stretcher believed to be carrying one of the rescued boys from the flooded cave to a waiting helicopter in Mae Sai, Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand. All are now recovering in hospital.

Before the rescue mission began, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Musk tweeted that he was designing an "escape pod" built from "the liquid oxygen transfer tube" of a SpaceX Falcon rocket that could be used as a submarine.

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osottanakorn said Saturday that mild weather and falling water levels in recent days had created the "perfect" conditions for an underwater evacuation.

Osatanakorn told reporters at the time that the four boys had to dive more than half a mile to get to safety. "We will check later today whether their eyes have adjusted to light", said Dr Jesada. It could reportedly take two to four days to complete the mission, officials said, so there is a chance that Musk's mini-sub will be there before the rescue is concluded. But officials waited several hours before confirming their rescue.

A spokesperson from the Thai public health authority said that they were in "high spirits" and also claimed that as they are football players, they have high immune systems.

Owning an iPhone is the best indicator of wealth, claims research
Owning an Android phone in the United States of America or using Verizon are also signs that you're in the high-income bracket. In 2004 (some three years before the launch of the smartphone), status symbols included owning your own auto or home computer.

"The first day we spent 11 hours, yesterday we spent nine hours, we hope we can do it [today] quicker or at least as quick as yesterday".

Four more boys were brought out Monday from the flooded cave in Chiang Rai after four others were rescued on Sunday. Each boy was accompanied underwater by two divers helping them navigate the dark, murky water in the flooded tunnels.

So far eight boys aged between 12 and 16 have been led out of the cave system by a team of expert divers over two days.

A senior public health official said separately that a medical team tending to the eight boys who have already been brought out from the cave has assured that they are in good health.

Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass isolation barrier, and Jesada said doctors may let the boys walk around their beds on Tuesday.

Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

Soccer's governing body, FIFA, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they make it out in time.
